Lee & Lyne Sands
Lee & Lyne knew the moment they walked in this historic building, that it needed to be restored and converted into a cool one-of-a-kind setting. Lee and Lyne have worked hard to bring this vision of overnight lodging and event venue to life. Lyne and Lee equally love meeting new people, giving tours and telling the history of the property. Lee keeps Magnolia Manor and Chapel functional and looking beautiful with his excellent handyman skills. Lyne takes pride in the ability to provide excellent customer service and loves creating luxury experiences for her guest. Lee and Lyne are extremely responsive but give you complete privacy. They have embraced the new standards that have been put in place during the pandemic and made adjustments to ensure a safe and comfortable experience for our guests.
At the corner of Main and Central stands a city landmark and cornerstone of downtown Humboldt.
The Cumberland Presbyterian Church erected a red-brick Church at this corner in 1895. This historic ole church has a history that spans more than a century of celebrations and gatherings.
In 1920 they decided they needed more room so they built an Education Center directly behind the Church, which consisted of 2 stories plus a basement, it contained 6 powder rooms (2 on each level) – top floor had 5 Sunday school rooms, the main level had a Nursery for the children, a Choir Room, A parlor, and the Pastor’s Study, the basement consisted of a fellowship hall and kitchen, behind the kitchen was a coal chute where they shoveled coal in from the street side, to heat the building.
In 1930 – they joined the two buildings together. Which now is the main entrance thru the Courtyard for Magnolia Manor and Chapel.
